|I started playing guitar at the age of 17 being an
absolute beginner and went on studying at a
world renowned university under the instruction
of world renowned players.
The purpose of this website is to share a bit of
my life and music to inspire people to play, let
listeners enjoy, as well as to encourage existing
players to take their instrument to the fullest of
their abilities. Above all, this website is intended
to send a message;
dreams can be made into reality.
There are recordings, interesting reading, a blog "Great Composers and their Lives", and more. Having had many wonderful teachers, not only with great talent but also
great souls, I moved on to study at the internationally acclaimed Mozarteum University for Music and Applied Arts in Salzburg, Austria, where I completed my M.A.degree
in Guitar, studying under well-known guitarists Maria Isabel Siewers de Pazur, Joaquin Clerch, Augustin Wiedemann, Ricardo Gallen, and the world-renowned player
Eliot Fisk. I have also had the opportunity to play for master classes held by leading guitarists, such as David Russell, Alvaro Pierri, and David Tannenbaum. In doing so, I
have not only learned the instrument, but lived out my dreams.
